Dauntless Is Now Available on Audible!

Hey friends,

Love my books but short on time to read? Never fear — you can now pick up the ENTIRE Lawless Saga in audiobook format!

Dauntless is now available on Audible.com. If you’re still on book two or three — or if you haven’t started the series yet — you can pick up one of the books for FREE with a 30-day trial of Audible! Or just use this month’s credit to continue Lark and Soren’s journey.

Lawless is great in audio because it’s a production of Podium Publishing — an author-focused audio publisher that has truly been amazing to work with. Jennifer O’Donnell performs the series, and I could not have found anyone better. She brings the characters to life in such a way that I can actually stand to listen to my own books! Amazing!

I’m sure I don’t have to remind you that summer is just around the corner. That means vacation and ROAD TRIPS, which means you need good listening material!

With 40+ hours of audio in the series, you have enough to get you through the drive from New York to LA! No more crackly radio stations or long stretches of silence. Instead, you can get sucked into a story of adventure, disaster, heartbreak, friendship, and guts.

So what are you waiting for? Go grab Dauntless on Audible. It’s an epic ending to the series, and I know you’re gonna love it.


Colony One Cover Reveal — And Get the Book Early!

Hey friends,

Today’s the day…I’m finally ready to unveil the cover of Colony One.

Screen Shot 2018-04-12 at 1.45.59 PMThis one took Slobodan and I a long time to work out because I had to decide how to best convey the story I was trying to tell. We played with putting people on the cover, not putting people on the cover, and finally settled on a view of the EPIC space colony.

Even if you’re not typically a “general” sci-fi reader, you’re going to fall in love with Colony One. It stars Maggie, a gutsy young journalist who’s struggling to make it in a world dominated by algorithms and robots, and Jonah, a disgraced ex-Army special forces guy with a chip on his shoulder and one last chance to make it in his career.

These two are strangers from opposite coasts, but their worlds collide when they’re sent to live on the first-ever civilian space colony. Mind-bending future technology, conspiracy, deception, sexual tension — this book has all the things you’ve come to expect from my books. It’s more like The Fringe than Lawless, so if you’re hungry for something like that, you’re going to devour this series.

Get Colony One Early

One more thing: If you LOVE my stories and want to get this one early, don’t forget to subscribe to my books on Patreon. You only have until Tuesday, April 17! Here’s why you should:

  • You only pay when I release a new book. Never miss a new release again.
  • You get cool bonuses. For Colony One, I’m giving my Patreon people three free short stories.
  • You get the book early (usually about a week before it goes live on Amazon).
  • You get the book in any format you want. (Read on an iPad or Nook? No problem. BookFunnel supports those, too. Plus, you own the book. You’re not “borrowing” it from Kindle Unlimited.)
  • You get to support me directly. I pocket about 90% of the profits generated by Patreon (rather than the 35-70% I keep from Amazon).

I’ve created several different tiers on Patreon so you can get exactly what you want:

  • $1 –  Short stories ONLY (no e-book)
  • $4 – E-book (delivered via BookFunnel April 18), short stories, plus any other digital bonuses I come up with.
  • $25 – SIGNED PRINT COPY (delivered via snail mail a few weeks after the digital launch), e-book (delivered via BookFunnel April 18), short stories and digital bonuses. This option is only available in the U.S., but there is an international fan tier above this one.

You can cancel or change your pledge at any time. You just have to sign up by April 17 to get Colony One. Otherwise, you’ll have to buy it on Amazon with everyone else on April 24.

Happy reading!

Now You Can Get My Books Early With Patreon!

Hey friends,

I’m finishing up edits on my upcoming book, and I’ve been busy developing something cool. It’s a new way to get my books out into the world that allows me to reward my readers for being awesome.

  • Have you ever wished that you could get a signed copy of one of my books?
  • Do you ever wish that there was more story at the end of a series? 
  • Have you gone to buy one of my books from Nook or Apple and been disappointed that it wasn’t there?

If any of this sounds like you, keep reading!

I just started a Patreon page, which allows readers like you to subscribe to my books. Yep, you heard that right: You can now become a patron and get my books before they’re released.

For the cost of one of my e-books (just $4), you can get each new release about a week early, along with exclusive Patreon bonuses such as short stories and deleted scenes. When you sign up, you’ll get the e-book via BookFunnel in whichever format you choose. Whether you read on Kindle, Apple, Nook, Android, etc., you can get it in a way that works for you.

So what is Patreon?

Patreon is a website that makes it easy to pay authors for their work. It also allows authors to give their readers more cool stuff. It’s basically a subscription content service, but instead of paying every month, you just pay when I release a book.

If you REALLY like me, you can sign up as a Super Fan and get a SIGNED PAPERBACK COPY with each new release. You’d still get the digital version early and all the cool bonuses — I’ll just mail you a signed copy when the print book comes out.

If you want to buy the books on Amazon after they come out or read with Kindle Unlimited, you can still show your love with just $1 per book release. This will get you the bonus content — you just won’t get an e-book.

Sound good? Sign up here.

So why am I doing this?

Well, for one thing, Patreon puts more money in my pocket. Instead of earning 35 to 70 percent of the list price, I get to keep about 90 percent.

Patreon also means that I can serve my readers on Nook, Kobo, and Apple — not just Amazon Kindle. Being part of Kindle Unlimited means I MUST be exclusive to Amazon, and I don’t like that. I feel as though I’m leaving readers behind, and it also means that 93 to 99 percent of my income comes from one source each month.

If Amazon ever changed the rules, I’d face serious financial trouble. Patreon allows me to develop a more direct line to my readers.

Sound cool? To learn more about Patreon and all the cool things you get when you become a patron, hop on over to my page to check it out!

You can also email me with any questions at tarahbenner@gmail.com.

I hope to see you on Patreon soon!

Ruthless Is Now on Audible!

Hey friends!

Ruthless_Audio_CoverBig news! Ruthless is now available in audiobook format. You can grab your copy today with your Audible credit or get it for FREE when you start your 30-day trial. (If you haven’t started the Lawless Saga yet, now is the PERFECT time to do it. Books one and two are also available, and book four is coming soon to Audible!)

I cannot say enough good things about Jennifer O’Donnell, the talented narrator, or the wonderful people at Podium Publishing. They have created an experience that is simply out of this world. I wrote the book, and I found myself getting sucked in. Jennifer really is that good.

If you’re like me, you probably made a New Year’s resolution to read more — or, in my case, to read more consistently. Audiobooks are a great way to accomplish that goal. I listen to audio content while I’m making breakfast, getting ready, and cleaning the house. It’s also a nice way to share your favorite books with your spouse or family members by forcing them to listen in the car. Haha! Dystopian ambush.

So what are you waiting for? Go download Ruthless on Audible. And let me know what you think! You can shoot me an email via the contact form in the menu or leave a note in the comments below!



Lifeless Is Now Available on Audible!

Hey friends,

I hope you all had a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

It’s been a crazy month for publishing — even by my standards. I released Dauntless on December 19, and Lifeless came out in audio on December 26!

 You can download the audiobook version with this month’s Audible credit, or you can listen to the book for free when you start your 30-day trial!

If you haven’t gotten into audiobooks yet, I highly recommend it. They are a great way to consume stories while you’re driving, working out, or just cleaning around the house. And Jennifer O’Donnell’s performance of the Lawless Saga is truly out of this world. Collaborating with Podium Publishing has been an amazing experience, and they have produced a performance that I am so incredibly proud of.

For those of you just getting into the series, don’t worry. Ruthless will be out January 31, so you won’t have long to wait.

Happy reading (and listening)!

Dauntless Is Now Available!

Hey friends,

Today’s the day. Dauntless is finally available for digital download, and I’m offering a KILLER bonus to those who buy the book early.

If you download Dauntless within the first week, you’ll get “Where Are They Now?” — my personal concluding remarks on where your favorite characters ended up after the last book in the series.

Dauntless picks up right where book three left off. Lark and her friends are on the run once again, and Homeland Security is hot on their tails. Soren is reeling from his discovery at Cheyenne Mountain, and his pain and anger threaten to pull him and Lark apart. Lark holds the key to saving the world, but to do so, she’ll have to put herself and her friends at risk.

If you haven’t started the series yet, now is the time to do it. Today and tomorrow only, Lawless is FREE on Amazon. I’m following it up with a 99-cent promo on book two Thursday and Friday, so you can load up your Kindle in advance for a full holiday of reading.

So what are you waiting for? Go grab your copy of Dauntless today, or start the series for free. Lawless is packed full of end-of-world awesomeness. You won’t be able to put it down.

Dauntless is Coming December 19th!

Hey friends,

It’s almost here. The conclusion to the thrilling Lawless Saga will be here on December 19th! This might be the best book in the series yet, and I am so excited for you to read it.

Book four picks up right where Ruthless left off. Lark and the gang are in serious trouble. Soren is reeling from his discovery at Cheyenne Mountain, and Lark realizes she has a tough choice to make. Some of my favorite characters from the series reappear in Dauntless, and they’ll be instrumental in helping Lark on her mission. I can’t say too much more about it without giving away some important information. All I can tell you is that you DON’T want to miss it.

To reward those of you who will go out and download the book right away, I’m including some special bonus content you can’t get anywhere else. If you download the book within the first week, you’ll get “Where Are They Now?” — my personal notes on where the characters ended up after the series concludes.

Are you getting excited? Wait. There’s more. You can read the first chapter right now. Just click here, and let me know what you think in the comments below.

Lawless Is Now on Audible!

Hey friends,

I know what you’re thinking: Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and you have nothing to listen to in the car on your way to visit family and friends. Never fear — Lawless is now available in audiobook format!

Now, to be fair, I don’t recommend listening to the book with small children in the car, but nothing says Thanksgiving like spending 25 years in an experimental prison community. Am I right?

If you haven’t had a chance to read Lawless yet — or if you just want to share the series with someone you love — the audiobook is an excellent way to experience the story. The performance by Jennifer O’Donnell is out of this world, and my audio partner Podium Publishing kicks some serious ass.

You can download the book with your Audible membership OR get it for FREE when you start your 30-day trial. (If you bought the e-book, the audio version is also Whispersync’d. That means you can get it for roughly half the list price!) Best of all, when you download the audiobook, you’ll get a link to listen to Desolation — the novelette from Bernie’s perspective that you can’t get anywhere else!

So what are you waiting for? Go grab your copy now!

Hey friends,

Big news! Lawless and Lifeless are now available for pre-order on Audible. I’ve been waiting eagerly for this day, and now it’s finally here!

Publisher's Pack_Lawless Saga_2400px 2400px_300DPI_preview

There are a few reasons why this is incredibly exciting.

First of all, you can download Lawless 1 & 2 on Audible for a single credit. That’s right. You get two awesome audiobooks for the price of one. Plus, when you download the Lawless Publisher’s Pack, you’ll get a link to listen to Desolation, the bonus novelette from Bernie’s perspective.

Another reason to be excited? The audiobooks were produced by Podium Publishing, the audio geniuses behind books like The Martian.

Podium does great work, which was why I was so excited to snag this partnership with them. Trust me, if you enjoy audiobooks, you MUST listen to Lawless. The series is performed by Jennifer O’Donnell, who has done an incredible job with the books. I’ve been listening to the audio while I cook and clean, and I am blown away by how she brings the story to life.

If you haven’t had a chance to read the Lawless Saga yet, go check it out on Audible. If you aren’t an Audible member yet, you can pick up Lawless 1 & 2 with your free trial.  The audiobook will be delivered to the Audible app on October 17th, so you won’t have long to wait.
